Nita predominantly works with teens and young adults exploring interpersonal relationship concerns, living in-between cultures, existential issues (i.e. grief and loss, finding meaning and purpose in life), gender identity and sexual orientation, faith and spirituality. Her clients shared that life’s challenges may leave them feeling scared and isolated. In some situations, integrating different values, transitioning to a different stage in life, or experiencing unexpected events may lead to confusion and anxiety.
Sometimes we experience some rough patches in our lives, and facing life’s challenges on our own can be overwhelming. As a fellow human being, Nita is well acquainted with pain and suffering. She recognizes that walking through difficult time on your own can be isolating, so it takes courage to reach out and seek help. If you have found your way here, you have taken a brave first step. Nita is here to accompany you in your journey and provide a space for you to put words to your feelings and experience. At the heart of her work, she firmly believes that we are born with inherent longing to be seen, heard, known, understood, and cared for, especially during difficult time. In sessions, her work is driven by curiosity, and together we will figure out who you are, who you want to be, and how to get there. From her experience journeying with clients, Nita witnessed that we are capable of rewriting our life story, given the right support. The most rewarding part of her role as a counsellor was seeing clients thrive and live a meaningful and purposeful life.
What inspired me to be a counsellor:
Healing, growth, and development take place in the context of a safe and caring relationship. Committing to therapy and choosing the right therapist are essential. Nita remembers feeling lost and overwhelmed when she reached out to a counsellor for the first time . Even though it took a few tries to find the right fit, she felt completely seen and understood. Her journey with her own counsellor has helped her tremendously, especially in sifting through the confusion, shame, guilt, anxiety. She mustered enough courage to be herself. Her personal healing journey inspires her to be a bridge between cultures. Existing between Indonesian-Chinese and Canadian cultures, she had first-hand experience in integrating competing personal and family values and socio-cultural structures.
Nita believes that healing starts when we find a safe space to integrate the many parts of ourselves. Should you choose to connect, it is a great honour to be invited to journey with you. I welcome you to book a free 15-minute discovery phone consult to see whether we could be a good fit. Your heart will get the sense whether this is right for you.
